Joan of Arc Garden, Plains of Abraham
Category: Public Gardens & Events
Location: 835 Avenue Wilfrid-Laurier, Quebec City, QC, Canada
The Joan of Arc Garden is one of the jewels of the Plains of Abraham and owes its name to the equestrian statue of Joan of Arc that stands in its center. Created in 1938 by landscape architect Louis Perron, the garden has a very particular style. Rectangular in shape and slightly sunken, it combines the classical French style with English-style mixed flowerbeds. Accessible free of charge, the garden is unveiled at dusk with a lighting system that varies according to the atmospheric elements thanks to the system connected to the Quebec City weather station.
